Melina Sedó is a psychologist, writer, event-organiser, DJ and teacher who works in the creative fields of Argentine Tango, Therapeutic Dance and Fantasy Roleplaying Games.


Argentine Tango
Melina started dancing tango in 1995 and teaching in 2001. Together with her dance-partner Detlef Engel, she has developed a unique teaching method and built up her career based on high quality standards, authenticity and reliability. Melina works with dancers all over Europe and the USA, trains tango-teachers, organises local and international events and has produced a book + film that cover the basics of this beautiful dance. Her dedication has helped form a European community of dancers, who cherish the close embrace to traditional music and dance a modern tango, free from pre-defined steps or role-allocations. Melina shares her experience with other tango dancers, teachers, djs and organisers to help them to develop their dance and their communities, to organise great events, to develop their work-related skills and to find students who share their philosophy.

Therapeutic Dance
As a psychologist and dance teacher, Melina is on a lifelong journey of self-development. She has studied Yoga and other forms of movement, is certified as „Dance and Exercise Pedagogue“ and is currently completing a training as „Director of Therapeutic Dance (DGT)“. 
Melina has integrated these skills and methods in her tango classes and now she is branching out. Starting in autumn 2024, Melina will offer classes that use dance as a medium to unlock new dimensions of self-expression, confidence, and emotional intelligence. Embark on a journey of self-discovery and holistic wellness with this unique blend of dance therapy, infused with the subtlety of tango-communications.

Fantasy Roleplaying Games
Melina discovered RPGs in the early 90s and soon started to act as a storyteller in her local club, organise conventions, write for a role-playing magazine and translate sourcebooks from English to German. In 2020, she re-discovered this passion and is now working for Vortex-Verlag to create exciting adventures set in Renaissance Italy.
